2013 has been a bumper year for film, it's criminal to relegate all I have seen, the wondrous experiences and feelings I have felt thanks to cinema this year, to just ten films. Explaining their position is equally tough. Given that my main mission intentionally or not at GwP this year has been to champion Asian cinema, I present to you dear readers my top 10 Asian films of 2013.
